Caretaker Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer will remain in charge at Ewood Park if the club avoid relegation from the Championship this season.
The former Premier League champions are struggling this season and sit just two points above the drop zone in England’s second tier. And they will head into their clash with Millwall on Tuesday on the back of a 4-0 thrashing at Watford.
Bowyer is Rovers’ fourth manager of the campaign, with Steve Kean, Henning Berg and Michael Appleton all dismissed by controversial owners, Venky’s, after failing to deliver satisfactory results.
However, the club’s global advisor Shebby Singh was quick to stress that Bowyer will be given full backing should he succeed in securing
their Championship status.
He told The Daily Mirror: “Gary is in charge now and fingers crossed we will consolidate our position in the league.
“If that happens, Gary will start the next season. He has the job and it’s his to lose.”
Blackburn were relegated from the Premier League last season, but have not played in the third tier of English football since 1980.
